Day 86: Favor from the Lord

Yesterday, I printed out Proverbs 18:22 on cardstock: “He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the LORD.” Then, I put it in an 8-by-10 frame and presented it to you. For the cardstock, I used a color called “French Vanilla,” which turned out nice I guess. That’s a whole lot of light colors in and around that frame, though. It might’ve been nice to mix things up a bit with a brightly colored background.

Once again, our oldest daughter wanted to help with your surprise, but this time she kept it a secret. She asked me what the sign says and I told her. Then I said that I made it to let you know how special you are. When I took her to the store later, she really wanted to get something for you because she “really wanted to let mom know how special she is.” I like that!

I chose this act of love to benefit the both of us: I wanted this frame to be a consistent reminder for you and for me that you are a gift from God. Now, each time one of us passes it by, Proverbs 18:22 will be deeper ingrained into our minds.
